Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe for Fall

I used the Merry Cafe stamp set to create a fun fall card to share with you for today.  This set coordinates with the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies, don’t you just love that?  I also like the fact that Merry Cafe covers fall, Halloween, Christmas and even Valentine’s Day.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped the small leaf image from Colorful Seasons in Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango onto a panel of Very Vanilla, then adhered it to a panel of Soft Sky.  Next, I wrapped some Linen Thread around the DSP panel and tied a bow, incorporating the Copper Foil leaf cut out from the Seasonal Layers Framelits Dies.

The DSP panel was then adhered to the front of the card and I was ready for the Merry Cafe set.  I stamped the coffee cup image onto more of the Painted Autumn DSP, and the lid onto Soft Sky.  Both were die cut using the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in Tangerine Tango onto Very Vanilla.  I used Soft Sky for the band, but cut it in half with my Paper Snips so that it would peek out around the sentiment.  The lid was adhered with a thin strip of liquid glue, then the whole cup was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally, I popped the whole art panel onto the Tangerine Tango card base with dimensionals, and added some enamel shapes to finish off the front.  For the inside, I added a narrow strip of the same DSP as I used on the coffee cup to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.  

Merry Cafe is definitely a must from the Holiday catalog!  I hope you’re thinking of adding it to your wish list!
